Humor in a Jugular Vein: A Selection of the Art and Artifacts of MAD Magazine from the Mark J. Cohen and Rose Marie McDaniel Collection
May 1 – September 2, 2005
The Ohio State University Cartoon Research Library
27 West 17th Avenue Mall, Columbus, Ohio

MADly Yours, a speech by legendary MAD editor Al Feldstein, is scheduled for 2 p.m., Sunday, May 1, 2005, in the Grand Lounge, The Ohio State University Faculty Club, 181 South Oval Drive. A reception to open the exhibit will follow at the Cartoon Research Library.

Al Feldstein penciled and inked comic book pages professionally before he graduated from high school. Following service in World War II, he worked with Bill Gaines at EC Comics where he created, wrote, illustrated and edited comic books such as Tales from the Crypt, Weird Science, and Panic. After EC Comics folded due to the wave of comic book censorship in the 1950s, Feldstein edited MAD Magazine from issue 29 in 1955 to 1984. He now lives and paints in Montana.

The speech and reception, which are co-sponsored by The Ohio State University Friends of the Libraries and supported in part by the Mark J. Cohen and Rose Marie McDaniel Speakers Endowment, are free and open to the public.

Parking for the May 1 event is available in the Ohio Union and Arps garages. Due to the Wexner center renovation, access to the Cartoon Research Library may be limited to walkways on the east and the north.
